Christmas Baskets

christmas basketsI love making personalized baskets. They present so nicely, especially when they are wrapped in shrink wrap cellophane. It is a little bit of a hassle to get everything balanced while you position the wrap, but once it is secured it keeps everything in place just the way you want it.  In face it is so professional looking that you have to put something personal inside just to prove you didn’t buy it!

Christmas Wrapping

I love wrapping presents.  I love color coordinating with my tree, finding fancy ways to wrap but especially cute little embellishments to make them extra special.

In the past I have looked high and low for color coordinating wrap.  Then I am stuck with tons of leftover paper that I will never want again because the next year I am doing a different color. I really don’t want to see the same decorations year after year.  Last year I promised myself I would do all brown paper packaging.  And after doing just a few this year, it is definitely one of my fa-vor-ite things!

So I Pinterested “brown paper packages tied up with string” and I got tons of inspiring results.  So here is a few of the results!

Covered Pretzels

Almond bark and sprinkles!  This is a favorite at our house.  I am wondering why we would ever bake anything without stopping to immortalize it in pictures.  All that hard work down the gullet and no one ever knows how pretty it was.  I am taking pictures of all my baking (that looks good ha ha) this year!  Maybe that would make awesome Christmas cards.  What a concept.  Art from your own kitchen!  Plus I can put it in my recipe book!
